NOVA DVR Galaxi 1644 Lathe
The world’s only intelligent woodlathes
This late combines the best features of larger lathes - power, capacity and capability with state of the art technology to make your turning more efficient, fun and safer. The nova galaxI dvr 1644 is the most versatile lathe on the market.
It is able to handle a wide range of work from very small pens to larger 29"(750mm) bowls and long spindle work (using optional outrigger accessory). Using the unique dvr technology, the direct drive motor is incredibly smooth with no pulleys or belts to vibrate.
The nova dvr series are the only smart lathes on the market, the only lathes to feature intelligent adaptive control software that works for the turner to produce optimum turning conditions for your specific projects
Speed Ramp Profiles
You can set a hard or soft speed ramp up. Soft - for light work at speeds lower than 500 rpm, Normal (default) - Suitable for most work, Hard - For heavy and/or "out-of-balance" work at speeds lower than 500 rpm.
Electronic Auto Braking
When engaged, the spindle stops very quickly. This feature can be manually set on auto braking or off auto breaking. Auto braking stops the free wheeling time to slow the workpiece down when you want to inspect it or change it.
- Wireless Remote Accessory
- Interface Available in English and German (French coming soon)
- Electronic Speed Chart - You can select for a finish, shape or roughing cut out. Then, input the workpiece diameter and the controller gives you the recommended speed which you can confirm or alter if you wish.
- Emergency Stop
- Speed Knob for precise adjustments
- Password Protection
Incredible Speed Range
With a very low speed of 100 rpm up to an incredibly high speed of 5,000 rpm, the NOVA Galaxi DVR is the perfect solution for a wide variety of projects from small pens to large bowls and platters.
Powerful - High Torque
The DVR motor is small and compact but delivers a whopping 1.75HP (2HP 220V) of direct drive turning power. Direct Drive DVR Motor offers more power/torque than any competitive 16" lathe on the market.
The computer analyzes (100s of time per second) both the spindle position and the power required to maintain a given speed. As cutting tool pressure is increased the drive adds more power. This is a huge step up from the 'dumb' AC or DC where there is no connection between the power supplied and the actual spindle requirements.
Incredibly Smooth Turning
The spindle rotation is closely controlled and monitored by the computer, coupled with the direct DVR drive motor setup which has no pulleys, belts to cause vibration.
All the power you need in a compact working space.
Fully 360° Swivel Head
- Position work where you want it, makes your turning more comfortable and save you workshop space.
- High accuracy and easy swivel.
- Headstock can move along bed to be positioned to be at the end of the bed or anywhere in between for large work.
Full Cast Iron And Unique Features
- Outrigger accessory, movable headstock and swivel headstock all add to the capacity of the lathe.
- Full cast iron for vibration dampening.
Additional Enhanced Features
- Self centering headstock.
- Storage in headstock.
- Cast iron stand is designed to allow the owner to make custom shelves to add to the stand, if desired. (Shelves are not supplied with stand.)
- Camlock on toolslides and tailstock for secure hold.
As more features are released for the DVR Controller you will be able to download a firmware update from the internet via your computer - then input the updated program into your DVR controller. Firmware is easy to update with a DVR USB.

This is a pretty big machine. Cast iron legs and bed. If I could criticize it at all, it would be for the quality of the castings, they are a bit rough, but that is typical of chinese stuff these days. Everything else works well though, and the joy of using this machine is in that pivoting headstock that lets you turn items larger than the 8" swing would allow.
The DVR functionality of the headstock is excellent. You can dial the speed up or down almost instantaneously. There is built in braking, so your work doesnt take forever to slow down. I have noticed that if I am impatient and try to move the work by had once it has stopped that sometimes the machine will fight back because it hasnt had enough time (maybe a second or so after stopping) to get out of its braking mode.
There is a spindle lock on the head for changing chucks. The tailstock is very smooth and has a pretty long stroke and has a little storage door to hold extra live centers and such. The machine runs on standard 110. It also has a reverse rotation function, but you have to use a chuck or faceplate that has a set screw to keep it from spinning off.
I cant speak to any warranty issues because I have not had any problems with the lathe. Hopefully I never will.
So, just as you might guess, I am not only mortified at how they mis-treated my lathe and damaged it but I still don't have a lathe that works due to a wobble in the headstock. They then send me a set of bearings that I practically had to beg for so that I can replace them myself. Taking up much more of my time. Additionally, The wobble of the spindle, causing the wood to not be able to be trued up, also causes the carbide tips of my turning tools to become loose due to the constant repeated hits. Also not safe.
I replaced the bearings, but gee whiz, still a wobble. So it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that spindle MUST be bent. Still unable to have my tools touch the wood 100% of the time in a revolution so therefore, I still have a lathe that I am not able to work on due to an UNSAFE TO USE LATHE. I have videos of the wobble of this lathe where you can easily see the spindle must be bent and I have posted these videos on YouTube to save someone else from buying an unsafe tool that is not backed or supported by the company.
And now Customer Service won’t even reach out to me after several weeks of attempting to contact them for help to resolve this issue. Nothing. Zilch. Crickets. I have requested for them to pick up this junk and give me my money back. I have requested for them to replace the headstock if they won't give me my money back. No word. Nothing. At this point they won't even respond to my service requests in the support tool online.
I seriously regret buying this lathe after doing my extended research and thinking I was buying the best lathe out there in wood turning world. Very saddened by this and to still be battling to hear my voice heard about how this lathe is unsafe and unusable. I cry every time I see it in my shop, and have only been able to use it as a table to hold the wood blanks I have created to use on my old Jet lathe with its worn out motor as for now, I cannot invest in another lathe.
I just want my issue resolved. I have lost so much money on buying this unsafe product, then having to pay to ship it, time lost by having to replace bearings myself, to then having them poorly package it, the poor thing gets damaged on the way back to me, many many lost hours, days months and a year of not being able to produce decent work. I have lost many thousands of dollars in expense, lost production, lost time, lost income, lost customers, lost faith in this company. Now I am losing more time in having to report this to the Attorney Generals offices, Better Business, Consumer Reports. This is an UNSAFE tool. Tools are meant to be safe and usable. Fix it or take it back is all that I ask.
A lathe is the most important tool that I need to use every day for my business and my art and we all need our woodworking tools to be safe. Maybe Teknatools thinks this lathe is within spec, and if that is the case, then that spec is just not fit or safe enough to be in my shop and it shouldn't be in yours either. What a huge disappointment and loss for me.
I was not paid to review this product, in fact I paid out many many many thousands of dollars to be able to write this review. Save yourself money, time and disappointment and buy from a company than stands by its products.
